the nurses try to give the best care they can at that dump. ITS probably very hard to be positive and stay cheerful when negativity is the only emotion in that building,remember it feeds off of its self and starts at the top maybe administration shouldnt talk bad about thier staff where EVERYONE can hear them

I think we are overlooking how hard the STNAs work.

Oh no, I have mentioned before how hard the STNA's work. They are the true backbone of the organization. No one will argue that. If they do, they don't know what they are talking about.

A lot of what Connie and Molly have to do is driven by Corp. I have seen a change in many administrators once they have left the HCR chain. They are truly caring people, but to maintain their jobs they must follow the rules or be fired themselves. As far as moral goes, it is up to each person to choose their attitude, and you have the negativity everywhere you go...the stna's dont feel appriciated...they do work so hard and do so much, so do the dietary and housekeeping staff too. Corp is diven by the dollar, and the bottom line...i realize that nothing in life is free, but for what we the tax payers pay, and for what private people pay for their stay in any nursing home they deseve the best care possible. I know that HCR staffs on state minnimums...sorry about spelling...but check out other nursing homes...they are above state min, even in these hard times...our Gov is not helping the situation either with his proposals for budget cuts to medicare and medicaid. I have worked at the Heartlands, and there are a lot of very good and caring people, hopefully they will be like flowers and continue to grow and squeeze out the weeds of negativity by continuing their good and great care.

i dont know why these places look for LPN's when they could hire people who are emt's that could do alot more than just change the dame beg sheets.

To "right of way"...I like the "change" idea. I notice the sign out front of Heartland has changed. Did they accomplish their goal? Does this have anything to do with being understaffed and laying off nurses? I don't believe so. I think someone hit the nail on the head when they mentioned being "liked and disliked". Hopefully, those individuals will get theirs someday. Maybe they too will be in a nursing home relying on someone else to take them to the bathroom. You never know what path you may cross in life or what cross you may bear. I hope they are enjoying their bonuses as I'm sure the residents aren't.

Hey, EMT! The LPN's in the facility do alot more than change bed sheets. They are as competent as the RNs that they are working with. U better stick with your pretend nurse job, as an EMT!

i have done the math but as long as the state of ohio says that is the ratio that is excepted then that is what they staff
The state states that it is a 1-15 ratio the but is, that only 5 of those patients can be total care...in this facility on one hall alone you have almost all the residents as total care..with maybe 2 stna's for one shift and only one for the remainder of a 24 hour day. along with only one nurse for that hall plus 10-15 residents on another hall. How much resident CARE do you think the residents really recieve when you understaff due to the bottom line ????

emt (Empty) Dr. wannabe. Don't give up your day job. Go tell Connie and Molly all the mean things said on here about them, maybe they will hire you. How many IV's do you suppose you will start and I know the LPN's would love to "Just make beds" What planet are you from????

And again that is the facility's fault for not sharing the wealth of those total care patients...as far as only having 5 total care patients in that ratio...I have never heard that nor during a survey do surveyors think of that. It's up to facility to get the job done within the regulations

Jenny Craig...great minds think alike. Would like to meet you some time. The administration at Heartland of Bellefontaine sucks. I have heard the comments made from the administrator about her front line staff. The only thing that comes out of her mouth is negative comments. If she feels that the RNs are the glorified nurses, then why does she bash them in the department head meetings? Nancy Johnson is oblivious about what goes on in that building. I would personally love to see a wipe out of the administration team. Even the Human Resource lady is rude. God forbid you have to go to her about an issue. The one ADON makes her own schedule. She sloshes in whenever she feels like it, and doesn't do a damn thing but set on her ass and eat cookies. It's pathetic. The other ADON picks up her slack but doesn't get any recognition for it. Would love to let Nancy Johnson's boss know about what REALLY is happening at Heartland. Anyone know the name of the higher-ups?

I have a family member in this facility. I am sickened by the comments that I have reading about the care that is provided there, and the administrative team. LOGAN ACRES is looking better and better. Thanks for the comments, it makes me keep a watchful eye on the happenings in the building. I will say that I have encountered some very caring staff in the building. I hope this continues. Thanks for the comments.

Who is Nancy Johnson? Is she new? I had not heard that about the ADON's. I don't think the HR person has a choice. Employes get threatened for speaking up or to each other, or if someone quits by choice or otherwise.

Nancy Johnson is regional...and not someone to deal with...fairly?
